A Magical Road Trip

Shadow of the Fox

By: Julie Kagawa

A half kitsune half human girl, a demon possessed samurai, a down-on-his luck ronin and a noble with a strange past time walk into your village… What do you do? You should probably run because they’re likely being trailed by demons and giant centipedes. Maybe don’t try to take advantage of them though.

Either way.

End of the Year Plans Tag!

the end of year reading tag

Okay, so technically it’s a little early for Christmas- though that and the end of the year are approaching at the speed of holiday shopping. So I thought I’d do the End of Year Tag originally created by Ariel Bisette  over on Youtube.

It’s technically for books but I’m a tag rule bender so I’m adding movies to…

the walking dead

So as the news has come out about several Walking Dead movies being planned I thought I’d help them out with these (somewhat) serious ideas for movies I’d actually like to see and also why AMC won’t do any of them.

FYI this is mainly about one particular character whose fate has been all over the news recently but if you don’t want to be spoiled consider yourself warned.

The Diary of a Bookseller

By: Shaun Bythell

Grade: B

A year in the life of a second-hand bookseller in a small Scottish Town. Shaun Bythell owns The Book Shop- the second largest 2nd hand bookstore. So it fulfills two dreams of mine. Owning a bookstore and living in Scotland.

But also provided great memories of customer service which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I can laugh about them now 🙂

I Am Vengeful

Vengeful

By: V.E. Schwab

Grade: D

Okay, just fair warning since this is the follow-up to Vicious there’s going to be spoilers concerning the end of that book. Also a warning if you loved Vicious like I did maybe just keep the happy memories in tact.

And yes, I know before anyone points out these are not supposed to be good people. I just think when writing about bad people it helps not to make them boring and cliche.

October Wrap-Up: Appropriate Amounts of Halloween Candy

the witch

One of these days I’m going to have the appropriate amount of candy for handing out on Halloween. I swear I half want to do some neighborhood census in September. Like do you have kids? Will you be trick-or-treating past my house? Does anybody ever nail the correct amount needed?

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Anyway we’re officially in November! Clocks change this weekend and it’s my favorite time of the year. Hoping my mood will improve with the time 🙂
